Before understanding what Single Sign-On is we must go through how traditional authentication works.
- A service will present the user with a login page where the user must submit a set of login credentials i.e., username and passwords. Some services might ask for more authentication information such as a one-time password.
- The credentials submitted by the user are validated against the ones present in the database at the service.
Traditional authentication is quite intuitive; everything is managed within the service, providing a simple way for users to authenticate. However, if a user needs to access multiple applications with a different set of login credentials for each application, it quickly turns cumbersome for the user. The user must remember multiple credentials and comply with different password policies.
Single Sign-On is a feature which lets you access PaySpace as well as third-party applications with a single submission of user credentials. Users aren’t required to remember an array of usernames and passwords for each application they need access to.
PaySpace uses OpenID, OAUTH and SAML to achieve SSO with third-party Identity Providers and below is a flow diagram of how a typical login process will work with SSO. Contact our support center so that we can assist you to setup SSO.
